Out of curiosity, are folks here planning on picking up Next Men?
No, I don't think so. Not as a knock on Byrne of any kind, but because I no longer have an interest in reading about allegorical tales of how hard it is for teenagers to adapt to a world that isn't as fair as they thought/hoped it would and should be. Same reason that I don't bother with Teen Titans, New Mutants, X-Men (who I take it are no longer technically teenagers, but still...) Gen-X or any of that type of book.
I do hope, though, that it's quite successful and provides some measure of happiness or vindication for the Old Curmudgeon.
